HFMA, the Healthcare Financial Management Association, is the professional body for the healthcare finance profession. As a leading provider of expert recruitment services into the NHS, Sellick Partnership are delighted to continuously sponsor the Regional and National HFMA Conferences. These events bring together likeminded finance professionals for a day of seminars, panel sessions, networking and more importantly provide an insight into the current challenges that the healthcare sector is facing.

The North East Annual Conference was held at the Ramside Hall Hotel in Durham and featured a jam packed programme of guest speakers discussing various topics including; Better Value in the NHS, Commissioning for Value and the NHS Five Year Forward Plan.

After registration delegates were welcomed by Chair, Peter Dawson. Guests spent the day listening to senior finance professionals, Clinical Leads and Commissioning Managers before the day was concluded by Steve Black, one of Europe's leading motivational speakers. Having counselled, mentored and coached numerous successful sports teams over the Globe, Steve delivered a passionate insight into how and why they have accomplished such achievements. He explained how to apply practices used in sport such as rugby and football, to everyday business situations ensuring positive impact and outcomes.

Throughout the day, Sellick Partnership were there to engage with candidates and clients to discuss any personal recruitment needs and offer and insight in to current market conditions. Attendees gathered at our stand for a chance to win one of the various prizes we had on offer including pens, chocolates, wine and champagne. Once again, everyone was given the opportunity to take part in our SP Buzz Wire challenge, a game requiring a steady hand, to see who could complete the wire in the fastest possible time.

In the evening, remaining guests were seated for a delightful three course meal before David Chandler, CFO at Sunderland CCG and HFMA Committee member announced award winners for categories such as Accountant of the year and large finance team of the year to name but a few. Local indie band 'Get Carter' played to the room whilst several people showed off their best dance moves.

Naturally, attending these events, the focus for us as Consultants is on promoting Sellick Partnership and the work that we do. However being part of the HFMA gives us a real insight into the market we work within as well as providing an opportunity to meet those who we speak to on a regular basis.

At Sellick Partnership we believe that good relationships are the catalyst for success. People tend to do business with those who they like and trust and meeting face to face provides a platform to do so. Sellick Partnership consultants pride ourselves on our professionalism but always strive to be memorable and aim to distinguish ourselves from our competition. If you would like more information about any upcoming conferences that Sellick Partnership will be exhibiting at, you can contact us on 0191 261 8585.

A thoroughly enjoyable evening was had by all and we are extremely looking forward to being part of the 2016 HFMA Northern Branch Conference.
